Oh no! I’m sorry to hear about your car. The average cost of hail damage to a vehicle is between $2,000 and $4,000, depending on the extent of the damage.
Generally, it’s recommended to seek out paintless dent repair (PDR) when possible as it’s generally the cheaper and less invasive option. For severe hail damage, you might still have to opt for more traditional dent repair, which is typically more costly and can involve sanding, fillers, primers, and repainting.
